REAC Inspections are changing, with NSPIRE coming in 2023. Are you ready?

HUD’s Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) has been working on updating and improving its physical inspection model, which is now over 20 years old. The new model, the National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate (NSPIRE), will replace the existing Uniform Physical Condition Standards (UPCS) as well as the Housing Quality Standards (HQS), aligning inspection standards across all HUD-assisted properties, as directed by Congress. NSPIRE prioritizes health, safety, and functional defects over appearance, focusing on the areas that impact residents most, their units. 

HUD plans for NSPIRE’s Initial Operating Capability Go-Live to be as soon as April 2023. Find out what you need to know to be prepared for the transition from UPCS and HQS to NSPIRE in 2023.  Understanding NSPIRE will highlight the many changes that will impact PHAs, Owners, and Agents (POAs) of HUD-assisted properties.

In this two-hour webinar, NCHM’s Vice President of Client Programs, Trevor Brandl will review:

  • The updated inspection process and follow-up requirements for POAs
  • HUD’s anticipated timeline of events and milestones
  • Inspectable Areas, Standards, and Deficiencies
  • The draft NSPIRE Scoring Model



Don’t miss this opportunity to get ahead of the curve on this innovative change to HUD’s inspection process.
